“Elliot Ranney is hard to describe. From the cover, you’d expect some pretty every day Folk music, but this is entirely different. We would call it Folk Jazz, since Elliott incorporated elements of both genres and does it well. Not surprisingly, his music is now appearing in a few indie films.”

Radio Mike - Feverered Brain

“St. Louis singer/songwriter Elliott Ranney’s music has a nice laid back Latin feel to it. His melodies carry strong echoes of the work by the great Brazilian master of the Bossa Nova, Antonio Carlos Jobim, and his vocals have the cool sweetness of Chet Baker’s singing. Although his CD has a couple of instrumentals, most of the tunes are vocals. In all cases, Elliott’s acoustic guitar work is confident, expressive, and very tasty. Using block chords to play the melodies and single-string work for contrast, this is simply wonderful guitar playing. One of the pleasures of listening to jazz, especially vocals, is hearing a song’s tune take you somewhere you weren’t expecting to go. Ranney is good at getting you there. This music is as sweet and cool as an evening breeze in the tropics and the warmth of Ranney’s clear mellow voice invites you to just sit back, relax and share the evening”

Renee Wood: Yellowhousearts.org I met Elliott Ranney, on the website Jazz Matrix. If you love Michael Franks and Steely Dan, then you are going to love Elliott Ranney as well. He has a breezy sort of smooth jazz sound. I especially love his song, "A Good Life", it makes me feel like taking a cruise, sailing down to the Carribean”
